As most of you know i have been feeling a little under the weather. It seems work, studies and going to class is getting the better of me BUT i won't let it.
Life is simply too short and by dwelling on things will not get you anywhere.
Alot of us are so caught up in troubles that we forget to appreciate even the smallest things like breathing; every breath is a gift, or seeing the sunrise which reminds us it is the awakening of another beautiful start in our lives.
If any of you have been feeling low lately, of have troubles of your own, or even have people making trouble for you, just know that life is too short. Smile at every moment possible.
I once read a quote that really inspired me, i cannot remember who it was by but it said something along the lines of -- Fire can only be quenched by water.
So next time someone gives you are greezy, simply smile at them, or if someone is bugging on you, don't bug on them back, simply do the opposite and see how it goes.
Do things that make you happy.
When i am feeling sad and run down i like to go for long walks were i can hear nothing but the birds and feel nothing but the breeze. It may sound silly but it truely calms me down.
Also taking long baths and filling the bathroom with candles.
Recieving Lots of cuddles from someone you adore & also giving. I find when i give someone something and i see them smile it makes me even more happier then recieving a gift.
ICE CREAM and lots of it. How i love the loud song of the ice cream truck on those summer days.
Pampering yourself, put on your favourite tunes, do your nails, wear a face mark and read your favourite book, or watch your favourite FUNNY movie. 'Along Came Polly' is a good one. The first time i watched it i must have rewinded it countless of times watching that chubby blonde guy entering the vicinity saying "the man is here" and progressing to fall over haha!
Everytime you go out takes lots of photos and look back on them when you feel like this. Remember the feeling you had when you were taking those photos, and say to yourself that you will have plenty of more moments like these.
Blog about how you are feeling, what makes you happy so you can look back on these.
Doing these things is like giving, as Holly from 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' likes to say it'the reds' , a smack right were it hurts and to leave thee alone!
Your smiles are to precious to be waisted away!
Yesterday was a beautiful day! I had not seen my boyfriend for a little over a week which is not like us. I was so busy with work and everything that we only got to speak each night for only 15minutes because i was so tired. That really took a toll on my mood.
Yesterday was a beautiful summery day which we have not had in months. I took him around to wear i grew up, showed him my primary school and the old play ground i used to play at, even at my oldschool. We are seven months into the relationship and the question arose, why have i not shown him this early?
Well i could only come up with one answer! Lazyness, and it strikes each and every one of us. I am not going to play that card anymore so i am practising awareness, and trying to make each moment count!
Gerardo & I on our way to the park
We ate ice cream at the park and i couldn't help but laugh on the way he eats/sucks on it! The we bought lollies including those little lollies in the shape of teeth and stuck them in our gums acting silly! We then came back to la casa, to eat and watch one of my favourite movies of all time. 'A walk to Remember'. If you have not seen it, SEE IT!
Most of you may think this is all rather mushy but like i said, i post about the things that make me happy! So you should you, everyone is unique, so what may be appealing to me, may not be to you, and vise versa!
The long journey ahead that awaits you, let it be beautiful!
Mine is self healing and growing.
